Location: Lakeland, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 5-10 minutes
Bright white/amber object that dims until vanishing.

Facing south off US 98s/Bartow Rd. My two kids and I witnessed a bright orange object that was slowly moving south towards Bartow and within 5-10 minutes dimmed until it disappeared.

The intensity of the light had no characteristics of other aircraft.

No flashing lights, not a red and green light, just simply a brilliant white/amber sphere.
